MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A woman who authorities say robbed more than $500 in cash from a convenience store in Mitchell has been arrested in western South Dakota.

Mitchell Police Sgt. Dean Knippling says the 51-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday on Interstate 90 between Wall and Rapid City. Knippling says the woman is a former employee of the Dakota Sunset store.

Knippling adds the woman was cooperative when she was arrested, and police were able “to verify her statements leading to the fact that she was the individual responsible for the crime.”

Authorities say the woman knocked on a door of the store shortly after 5 a.m. Tuesday, was let in by an employee, and then took the cash.

The Mitchell woman is being held at the Pennington County Jail. Formal charges are pending.
